I purchased an additional charger for my SP3 shortly after I received it. One for the office, and one for the road. I noticed yesterday that where the magnetic portion connects to the machine, there are now wires literally sticking out. This appears to be the result of the fact that when you connect it, the wire bends dramatically at the stress point. NOT GOOD. It's happening to my spare one as well. Considering these are $79.99, one would think that they would be made a little better? I mean, come on Microsoft. You already nail us on getting the keyboard separately, but you cannot make a better charger that will last longer and take the continued plugging and unplugging of the device? Yeah, I'll put some black electrical tape around it but my God, give me a break. Not sure if I am the only one noticing this but can't imagine I am, given I have TWO that are doing the same thing.
